Festa de Diu – Asia’s Longest Beach Festival
Festa De Diu is pegged to be ‘the longest beach festival in Asia’, spanning across three months, from December 2015 to February 2016. With concerts, carnivals, jam sessions and more than 300 artists such as Shreya Ghosal, Vir Das, Indian Ocean and Milind Soman set to perform, this beach festival is aiming to be the epitome of fun and relaxation.
Personally, i’m awed by the presentation and the festival teaser video – and seriously considering heading to Diu during this festival, especially since i’ve never been here before.
